In 1988 the Liverpool band Echo & The Bunnymen covered this song reaching #29 in the UK charts. Their version, which was featured in the film The Lost Boys
, was produced by Ray Manzarek who also plays on the track. In a scene from the movie, the vampires' cave contains a huge poster of Jim Morrison in his Jesus pose.
Echo also covered the Doors song "Soul Kitchen
," which appears on their album It's All Live Now
. Their guitarist, Will Sergeant, told Songfacts
: "We used to get compared to The Doors. I don't know why. It's probably because Mac [lead singer Ian McCulloch] had that kind of lower voice, similar to Jim Morrison. He never liked The Doors when we started out. He sort of got into them, as weeks went on, because I was always playing the tapes in the van. Then he got into the whole thing."
